England's leading run scorer in test cricket, Alastair Cook, has been in Kent hoping to encourage more children to play the sport.

He's spent the morning at a primary school in Rusthall in Tunbridge Wells, teaching children to play cricket, and hoping to inspire more of them to pick up a bat.

Abigail Bracken's report includes interviews with schoolchildren from Rusthall St Paul's primary school, Charlie Stroud, Evie Cann and Tilly Henry, as well as Fabian Devlin from charity Chance to Shine.
